The first mention of Neuhaus in 1016 in the "Vita Meinwerci" written by Abbot Konrad von Abdinghof after 1165 the biography of Bishop Meinwerk (1009-1036). The first documentary mention took place in the year 1036th A dispute between episcopal sovereign and the population of the city Paderborn leads to the fact that from the former castle between the three rivers a episcopal residence grows. From 1370 until the secularization of 1802/03, the bishops of Paderborn manage their prince bishopric from Neuhaus Castle.
The castle is confiscated by the British forces after World War II, but returned to the community on July 19, 1964. Today it is used by a municipal secondary school and houses the representative rooms of the city of Paderborn.
In 1994, Paderborn hosted the State Garden Show of North Rhine-Westphalia at the Neuhäuser Schloss (Wiki). Recommended tour! I went to school there.

The legend of the murdered rooferAt the roof ridge from the west gable of the house Fürstenberg a lying stone figure stands out. Its origin is based on a legend, which is reproduced here in short:Prince-Bishop Ferdinand von Furstenberg (1626-1683) had invited for a hunt, including a close relative of his own, a Herr von Spiegel, who, although known as a good shooter, had no hunting luck on that day and was very angry about it.When the hunting party returned to the castle, a roofer engaged in repairs interrupted his work to look at the arrival of the hunting party.The angry hunter aimed at the roofer - just to show what a good shooter he was - and hit him deadly.The bishop's order to seize the perpetrator escaped on horseback. After years, he visited Neuhaus again because he believed the bishop had forgotten the murder. However, he was arrested, sentenced to death and executed on the Wewelsburg.The shot craftsman was commemorated at the crime scene.
